Reno-Lake Tahoe

  The last time a took a real vacation , Carol and I spent 3 days in Reno Nevada before moving on to Lake Tahoe.  These are some of the pictures I took there.


Though it was “off season” the mountains were still snow covered in early May.  The water was clear and the reflections of the snow covered mountains on the lake were beautiful. 


In Reno, we visited the National Automobile Museum.  Spectacular!


We took a Ferry Boat ride on the Tahoe Queen.  It was our 20th wedding anniversary and my 51st birthday.


The Blueness of the water and sky when out in the deep water is amazing.


I met this guy on the dusty trail between Reno and Tahoe.  He's still trying to strike it rich. 


Spectacular scenery is around every corner at Lake Tahoe. 



The Mountains in the background make the scenery around this small lake in Reno spectacular.  The ducks make it fun.

  3. Great shots. The lake is gorgeous, but it looks so cold - I bet the snow melt keeps it chilly most of the year!

  4. Your photos make me homesick for Lake Tahoe. I spent many months there in my house at the top of Kingsbury grade.

  5. I've only been to Tahoe once, in winter, and really loved it. But I would like to experience it in the other seasons too. With less snow and less treacherous driving. Nice photos! #wkendtravelinspiration

  8. Ahhh, these pictures soothe the soul! I have never been to Lake Tahoe, but one of my favorite destinations has been the Grand Tetons. These pictures remind me a bit of being out there. Bet you had a ball! (visiting from Traffic Jam Weekend)

    1. Yes, it was a great vacation. I actually started my comedy career by going up on stage for the first time on that trip.

      Thanks for playing.
